The bbq was excellent, and the service was warm and welcoming... I am confident that this one is among the best.

The combo had me happier than a pig in you-know-what. Nearby my partner-in-crime gnawed on his pork ribs and, between bites, exclaimed how juicy and succulent they were. I had to rip a rib out of his hands to try a bite before they were gone.

The best smokehouse in Salinas, no question!

Really the best for our wedding. Easy buffet style. Minimal cost and great quality food. Plus my now husband really wanted to see me eat some ribs in my wedding dress. Haha. Even as the bride I went back for seconds.
